மனதின் ஓட்டங்கள்நம் கையில் இல்லை. சும்மா இருந்தால்மனது அதனுடைய வேலையை காட்ட ஆரம்பிக்கும்.  ஆகவே,அதற்கு இடம் கொடுக்கக்கூடாது என்று ஆசைப்பட்டால்விடாமல் மஹாமந்திர கீர்த்தனம் சொல்லி வா. இது சுலபமானது. மனது கண்ட படி ஓடி புதிய வாசனைகளை சேர்த்துக்கொல்வதையும்சம்பாதித்த வாசனைகளை திடமாக்கிக் கொள்வதையும்,இது சுலபத்தில் தடுத்துவிடும். அந்த அளவிற்கு எதிர்கால துக்கம் குறையும்.

 

We do not have control over the thoughts that arise in our mind. When we are idle, mind starts to play its game. If we do not want the mind to go astray, one should chant the Mahamantra kirtan incessantly. This is the easiest path.

 

This easily helps the mind not to run astray and accumulate any new latent impressions (vasanas) and prevents the latent impressions already formed to get hardened. Thus it helps to reduce our future sufferings.

 

Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji 

 

I feel ashamed to stand before God and seek for his blessings the next time. What should I do?

 

If you sincerely pray to get the obstacle removed, your prayer shall be fulfilled

 

To protect one from five senses one need to keep a vigilant watchman or a ferocious dog and that is nothing but the divine names of the Lord.

 

The Mahamaya (greatest illusion), the mind, can be brought under control slowly and steadily by Namakirtan alone.

 

Drench your senses in the enchanting form of Krishna, His stories, His glory and His Divine Name. The mind is effortlessly controlled!

 

What is difficult for human beings? The constant control of the mind.

 

The name of God is more powerful than the senses. It will become all right in time if you practise regularly.

 

If we think of God and pray to Him for His guidance and His grace, we shall derive strength to battle against these temptations and conquer our weaknesses

 

Likewise, never once does a true disciple doubt, if his Guru has conquered his senses!

 

If the mind troubles?

 

"It is all right even if you do not hold your senses under control. Keep doing Năma Sankirtan. The 'indriyăs' (senses) will automatically come under control!"

 

The method, by adopting which he can safely progress on the divine path, is to surrender himself entirely to the all-powerful God within him by constantly thinking of Him and His attributes

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare 
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
